THE EMISSIONS REDUCTION STORY
1996 saw the introduction of the first Tier 1 emissions standards, and since then Nitrogen Oxides (NOx) and Particulate Matter (PM) have been reduced by 60%. With the introduction of Tier 4A regulations in 2011, PM will be further lowered by 90% and NOx by 50%. These toxic substances are produced during combustion and can harm the environment and human health. But let’s find out a little more about them.
NOx: nitrogen monoxide and nitrogen dioxide are produced during combustion when the engine is at its hottest. These gases are two of the main causes of acid rain and the shrinking ozone layer.
PM: particulate matter is mainly made up of tiny carbon particles and other poisonous substances which are created when not all of the fuel is burnt during combustion, generally when the engine is cooler.
100 TIMES BETTER OFF THAN OVER A DECADE AGO
New Holland have reduced emissions 100 times over the last decade to improve the lives of farmers and their families. In real terms, this means you can run your Tier 4A compliant machine for 100 days and produce the same amount of emissions as a Tier 1 machine would have in just one day.
Agricultural: off road quality diesel (gas oil)
Standard: on-road quality diesel
Low: Principal activities use 10-60% of maximum demand on the engine, typical loader use
Medium: Principal activities use 10-80% of maximum demand on the engine, typical mixed farmer
High: Principal activities use 60-100% of maximum demand on the engine, primarily arable
Average: Overall average of 10-100% of maximum demand on the engine, all around use
